Kids for Wish Kids

Your Passion Can Transform Lives  

Kids For Wish Kids is a unique program managed by kids, for kids. 

Inspiring kids, just like you, can have an impact in right in our community. The Kids For Wish Kids program engages students, schools and youth organizations in philanthropy and service activities in partnership with Make-A-Wish. The program encourages community service, leadership, volunteerism and teamwork. It builds team spirit and gives students hands-on experience fundraising to help create life-changing wishes for kids fighting critical illnesses. 

Kids For Wish Kids puts kids in charge. They take the lead to brainstorm fundraising ideas, create action plans and manage everything from start to finish. Students can even combine their efforts for existing school events, such as spirit week or field day.   

To help, we have lots of great resources to share, including our online resource toolkit below, samples from other schools, and more!

Holiday Fundraising Ideas

Get your School to Write to Santa

Get your entire class or your entire school to write daily letters to Santa and Macy's will donate $1 for each letter up to $1 million to Make-A-Wish! Last year, Joseph A. Gregori High School wrote over 100,000 letters! 

Fundraise around your Neighborhood

Does your neighborhood do the holidays big with lights? Many kids have sold hot chocolate, popcorn or even placed signage out in yards around their neighborhood to donate to help grant a wish! Get creative and think of some great ideas!
